I need software for equipment maintenance tracking, I am thinking of designing an base database for this but It would probably save me a lot of time if something already exist to do this that is freely available. I would be happy if someone could point me to something, even if the software was not designed specifically for equipment maintenance tracking but could be repurposed in some way.
